of the state where tampa and orlando are and the miami metro area. .. we see college graduate group that obama lost by about 11 points in 2008. facing the most polls he's physically about even. i think that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. f
with him from that point on, it didn't matter where he was. i think president obama probably the same. it doesn't matter what they are doing, there is always something in back of their mind and in their eye you can tell are we doing everything we possibly can do to prevent this from happening again? thankfully, this is not partisan issue when it comes to fighting al-qaeda and setting up protocols in the united states to keep us safe. it was not a democrat issue or a republican issue. american one. success so far. vigilance is the most important thing we can do on the 11 anniversary. >> eric: we owe a debt of gratitude to george bush and dick cheney for setting the wheels in motion immediately. immediately upon that attack that kept us safe since that day on american soil. >> dana: one of the big issues there to prevent it the intelligence community and law enforcement could not speak to one another. there was a law that made -- put up a wall between the two. that was torn down. we're safer. >> bob: the c.i.a. had information they shared with the f.b.i. that may have been able to do so
to the white house. in three days, romney and president obama will be squaring off in their first debate. today both candidates stepping off the campaign trail to try to get ready. a big shift in the polls may hinge in the out come. latest real clear politics average, recent national polls it shows president obama leading by four percentage points. today vice presidential nominee paul ryan saying the g.o.p. ticket will come from behind to win. no surprises, senior advisor thinks otherwise. >> given that we're going to win this race. >> but you are not at this point ix are losing? >> we can debate polls. i can tell you this. the president is offering four more years of the same. he has been very good at distorting the issue and disguising the truth. he has been very good on distracting people. he is running on division, distraction on distortion to try to win an election by default. >> we have had a strategy that we executed from the beginning. we're ahead because the american people believe that this president has in his mind and in his heart the middle-class and how to build an economy that wo
